Oppo introduced their first smartwatch, the Oppo Watch, back in July.
However, there was one feature missing from the worldwide release – the fashionable electrocardiogram function (ECG), found in premium products like Apple Watch, Fitbit and the like.
Now, the company announced it will launch the Chinese Oppo Watch worldwide, which includes the ECG, on September 24.
Oppo says it already has FDA approval in the United States, which means they can start selling it ASAP, but it’s unclear what will happen in the rest of the world.
Initially, both the Apple Watch and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 launched without the feature and waited approval to turn it on.
Even outside the ECG function and the Apple Watch-inspired design, the Oppo Watch has plenty to offer.
The 46 mm variant with Wi-Fi and LTE features a large, 1.91-inch AMOLED display with 326PPI and an 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, while the 41 mm model (Wi-Fi alone) comes with a 1.6-inch AMOLED.
It runs Wear OS by Google, so Google Assistant is at your wrist, and offers up to 21 days of battery life, an impressive feat for so many activities tracked.
The Oppo Watch comes with 24-hour heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, guided breathing exercises, 5-minute quick workouts and, soon enough, the ability to take an ECG.
